Oliver and Jumpy 43-45 by Werner Stejskal brings young readers more adventures of the elegant tom cat, Oliver, and his kangaroo companion, Jumpy, that are sure to delight. Oliver and Jumpy go on a magic carpet ride to save a princess, friends give Oliver a great birthday party, and magic berries create problems in three cute stories that can be read to youngsters, and that will teach while they entertain. Your young ones will like them.
These three stories were good, but not quite up to the author’s usual standards, and there were several grammatical glitches. I give it four stars, though, because this is still a book that my grandchildren enjoyed.
